How the hell did we go from total denial of global warming to total bored acceptance of it in one Republican administration? I mean it’s a similar kind of sleight of hand to the whole political correctness movement, or Iraq, or any number of other things where the sudden reversal from the big lie to the big truth just leaves us stunned and apathetic. But it’s still shocking that everyone, everywhere, in every medium just suddenly has this ho-hum attitude about the whole thing. Like it’s a done deal. Nothing we can do, just have to sweat it out. I’d admit to the character flaw of trying to inhabit the reality-based community if I believed there was such a thing.
